Popular Keynsham butcher’s shop closes

The new year has begun with one less shop on Keynsham High Street.

The popular Wright Butcher’s Shop has closed and the premises are up for rent.

Agents Maggs & Allen say: “Situated on a busy high street in Keynsham, the property benefits from a high level of passing trade.”

The shop, which comes with a flat above, is available to let with six months of free rent offered by the landlord.

The agents say that the property would suit a similar food retail business, or alternative uses such as restaurant, subject to gaining the necessary planing consent.
